Technique / Style

This will be a class inspired by Contemporary (Graham, Cunningham) and Caribbean Dance, Capoeira Release Technique, Animal Flow and Yoga. We will seek liberation and flow of movement, by strengthening our grounding to the earth and finding the elasticity of our core. From shifting our weight in lower spaces of gravity, to slicing space, changing levels and textures of movement. We will integrate movement patterns and rhythms, travelling through the room. Inviting an acute focus, finding accuracy, breath and clarity.  In an energetic and playful environment we will revitalise our bodies, build strength, stamina and open our awareness. Class will be accompanied by live music via beat-box and loop station.

Class Description

Combining Contemporary and Caribbean Dance, Capoeira Technique, Animal Flow and Yoga, this Open Level class is perfect for anyone who wishes to try something new and rich in different styles.

Working with a more codified structure, you will prepare the body for an increase in activity throughout the class. In an energetic and playful environment, you will be invited to revitalise your body, build strength, stamina and open your awareness. The class will be accompanied by live music via beat-box and loop station.
